About the Program

The Charles D. Close School of Entrepreneurship is founded on the principle that entrepreneurship encompasses more than starting a new venture. Entrepreneurship is a habit of mind and an attitude; a skill set applicable to pursuing innovation in business, personal, and career contexts; and an approach to life built around innovative thinking, calculated daring, and proactive behavior.

The MS in Entrepreneurship and Innovation is designed for recent graduates or working professionals who wish to increase their knowledge and experiences in innovation and entrepreneurship. The MS focuses on developing the “individual as entrepreneur” as well as an understanding of the “process of entrepreneurship.”

The MS in Entrepreneurship and Innovation is preparing to enroll students beginning in the Fall of 2017.
